How Deepika Padukone, Anushka Sharma Are Slaying In These Black Dresses
A classic black dress is a wardrobe staple every girl needs in her closet. We rounded off two looks sported by Deepika Padukone and Anushka Sharma to give you the inspo you need
Every fashionista knows there’s nothing more important than having a classic black dress in your wardrobe. Wearing a black dress ups your style quotient instantly and can take you looking from drab to fab within minutes. There’s just something fabulous about rocking black and the colour is so versatile, you can do so much with it. Black can be dressed up with a statement piece of jewellery or can be amped up a notch with a pair of high heels and it can also be worn casually for a dinner date or for a casual night out with friends.
Now if you’re a Bollywood diva then you’re bound to have more than one black dress in your wardrobe. When in doubt, all you have to do is put on a black dress, pair it with some jewels, opt for a killer hairdo and you’re good to go. Over the years we’ve seen an array of black dresses gracing the red carpet. From little black dresses to long featured gowns, to voluminous tulle gowns and velvet numbers; we’ve seen them all. But there are two black dresses sported by two of our favourite Bollywood dives that have really stuck with us. And so we decided to decode their looks.
Anushka Sharma is usually spotted in her chic casual wear which comprises distressed denim jeans and a tee, or a pretty flirty skirt and top paired with kicks. But when this starlet dresses up for an appearance or for a red carpet event, the tables most certainly turn and she dresses up to the nines. Earlier this year, the Zero actress took to her Instagram account and shared some images of herself dressed in a stunning black Toni Maticevski gown and for obvious reasons, the pictures went viral on social media. The gorgeous figure-hugging gown fit perfectly around her waist and flared out towards the bottom.
The dress featured some frilled detailing on the shoulder and the waist and also featured a small trail towards the bottom. We love how this silhouette sits perfectly on the starlet’s physique and was most certainly a winner in our books. Anushka Sharma had her hair styled with a wet look and parted in the middle. With a slight wave, she had her hair tucked at the back and accessorized with diamond drop earrings. To round off the look, Anushka Sharma opted for rather bold smokey eyes and a nude lip and she looked nothing short of breathtaking for this look.
Another black dress that caught our attention was the one Deepika Padukone wore earlier this year for an awards ceremony. For the event, Deepika Padukone was clad in a stunning black Amit Aggarwal number and we don’t think she’s ever looked better. The black dress featured a deep, plunging neck line with pleated sleeve detailing and a long trail at the back. The dress hugged her body in all the right places and Deepika Padukone exuded some major sultry vibes in this look.
Deepika Padukone had her hair styled to perfection in a side parting and slicked back in a scruffy ponytail; perfect to show off that plunging neck line. For her makeup, the Padmaavat actress opted for shimmery eyes with winged liner and, bronzed skin and a nude lip. She accessorized with a pair of dangling diamond earrings and dainty rings and we think this look was nothing short of perfection and makes for the perfect example of a black dress that every girl should have stat!
